FSE London will take place at Old Billingsgate once again on 12 September.
There will be a ‘meeting of trade body minds’ seminar to discuss the FCA’s Mortgages Market Study Interim Report with Jim Boyd (Equity Release Council), Jackie Bennett (UK Finance), Paul Broadhead (Building Societies Association), John Barrass (PIMFA), Robert Sinclair (AMI), and Kate Davies (IMLA).
There will also be a mortgage panel debate with Chris Pearson (HSBC), Esther Dijkstra (Lloyds) and Ian Andrew (Nationwide), Peter Brodnicki (Mortgage Advice Bureau) and James Tucker (Twenty7Tec).
The panel will cover the outlook for the mortgage market during the rest of 2018 and beyond, the opportunities for advisers, and how technology can support advisers in an uncertain market.
James Prosser, managing director of Front Events, organisers of FSE London, said: “In a year when the FCA’s Mortgages Market Study Interim Report has provided plenty of food for thought for the industry, we are very pleased to be able to have a variety of mortgage market trade body representatives on one panel to discuss this, and many other areas.
“Some of the measures and proposals outlined in the Interim Report, if introduced, could have far-reaching consequences for all mortgage stakeholders, and it’s important to hear what our representative bodies are doing to ensure the market is not subject to poorly-thought out changes, which could illicit real damage.
“It is a real shame, given the debate generated by the Interim Report, that we do not have representatives from the FCA willing to provide an update to FSE, especially as the date for responses has now passed and given the huge depth of feeling the initial publication generated. The invite to attend and speak is still open and we feel the industry would benefit from, and deserve, an opportunity to hear from its regulator.”
